I recently had a comment on one of my posts here and it got me thinking enough to do a blog post. As it is an anonymous comment I am sure they won’t mind.
The gist of the comment is basically that money will solve all the problems and make the person happy.
So will flash cars, going on exotic holidays make you happy?
I won’t deny that having money does make your life that little bit easier. But would I be happy with millions, so that I didn’t have to work?
Although sometimes going out to work does my head in, especially if I have had a rough day/week, I do like working. I like going out and using my brain and helping others.
If I had a bottomless pit of money I think I would get bored and wouldn’t know what to do with myself. I would probably carry on eating loads of chocolate and getting fat!!
Ok on a serious note though, I do not believe that money will bring you happiness. Yeah it will bring you all the nice things you want in life, a BMW, plasma screen TV, holidays abroad, a mansion……but it can’t buy you happiness and love (unless of course having materialistic things is all it takes to make you happy). It won’t buy you a family and peace in your heart.
I have come across people who are not rich but more comfortable than us…and I have found them to be stuck up and stingy. I may be generalising here but I have often found rich people think they are above the law and religion.
I would rather just be comfortable and happy. Although at the moment I have a feeling of being unsatisfied, when it comes to money I am happy. I have a hubby and daughter, I have a roof over my head, a nice car, food on my table etc. I think I am just a bit bored with my routine and need to add in a hobby or two.
